Nepouite With Quartz
Loma Peguera, Bonao, Monsenor Nouel province, Dominican Republic
Miniature, 4.1 x 3.8 x 2.9 cm
Vividly green crystals, to .5 cm across, of the rare nickel, magnesium, silicate, nepouite are associated with tiny clusters of colorless quartz. Never seen one for sale before, so I bought it, simple as that. Its a rare, pretty nickel mineral that doesn't cost a lot....and is from a neat locale. I wish I could get more!
